there are a couple parks in our area and they require plastic pegs and I use the Demolition dumb chuck pegs for that. I really love them for parks and especially for concrete parks. they have an aluminum sleeve inside the plastic for strength.

But I do still use metal pegs for riding street to help the plastic pegs last longer

also how would you make sparkles come out of your grindtube when making moves on brick.

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.
Bike check?

Just cut the ends off your handlebars, and beat them onto your axle nuts with a hammer. Instapegs.

I'm gonna make a frame out of some pvc pipes, and fill it with expandafoam. That should be light enough right?

your dumb,a metal peg is by far better than a plastic,if you want a palstic there better for rails and to run as a front in my opinion.plastic pegs snap n crack.just wax the shit out bof the metal peg fool.

You're a moron...

That foam shit is HEAVY! Your frame would be lighter and more resistant to breaking if you made it out of old tires.


No plastic peg will last as long as metal ones will. Like a few people have said, the plastic sleeves for some pegs are your best bet for economy and strength.

It depends what you ride, if you ride skateparks alot and it has a bunch of coping on the ledges, plastic pegs wont slide as well as metal. If you have nothing but concrete ledges that are not waxed i would get plastic pegs. Either way i would get metal pegs

So, you're telling me foam, is heavy, when they're already made of steel.... Good call.

...Actually, if you took schedule 40 PVC in about 1.5" id and filled it all with(most types of) expandable foam, it very well may actually weigh more(or very close to) than the modern, standard weight frame.
That foam is incredibly dense once it sets. If you don't believe me, ask any airplane mechanic; though, they'll tell you the same thing as I did since I'm almost one(not bragging, just proud and letting it known how I know it can weigh more than steel).
For you to assume I was saying that ALL foams are heavier than steel while you were talking about expandable foam makes you look a bit daft, don't you think?

I didn't really feel like writing the word 'expandable' another time, when I could have just as easily written 'foam', and you would know what I was referring to. Maybe we're talking about different things here, because I have used expanding foam quite a few times, and any kind I've used has been relatively light... Either way, I'm surprised no one has tried to do that yet. All this weight whoring shit is getting a bit out of hand....
